Christmas Countdown Day 2 Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle

Any one else remember this?

I had not planned on including the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle in the Gadget Grapevine Countdown to Christmas. But, after hearing that Evel Knievel passed away on November 30, memories of this toy came flooding back.

So here this post is a tribute to the great stunt man and also a reminder of the cool Christmas gift I received many years ago, that remarkably is still available today.

This is a toy that I am sure any small or large boy would love

A quick search on Amazon revealed that this awesome retro toy is available today. The Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle has been made using the original 70's moulds. Just crank the handle and watch Evel perform total insane stunts. Just don’t do what I did with my original back in the 70’s. I built a ramp to watch Evel fly out of the second storey window. The jump was amazing, unfortunately the landing was a bit hard and Evel did not ride again.
